About our programmes
candena’s multi-award winning collaborative learning concept is engineered to nurture human interaction by providing online learning experiences grounded on the pillars of peer-to-peer learning, team work, a problem based approach and mentoring.
Within the framework of an online course or academic programme, individual members of the learning community come together in teams to tackle challenges collectively, cultivating communication skills, teamwork and quantitative reasoning. Participants also engage in the learning community at large, enriching their skills and knowledge while exchanging feedback with their peers. For academic programmes, a trained staff of didactic personnel (tutors, mentors, teachers) give participants input on relevant topics, supporting teams with feedback and reviewing their work.
Learning is also embedded in a real-world context because our courses use a problem-based learning approach by presenting teams with a series of successive assignments that gradually build up their skills. This allows the transfer of the newly developed skills towards a specific real world problem.
Our platforms provide a framework for collaboration. Team-based learning is essential for the development of integrated solutions, while also cultivating communication skills and vital teamwork competencies.
Tutored and Mentored
Through the intervention of trained academic staff in the capacity of tutors and mentors, learners receive input on relevant topics, valuable personalized feedback and the guidance they need to succeed in the programme.
A problem-based learning approach allows the transfer of course developed capabilities towards a specific relevant problem and thus enhances the participant’s ability to navigate complex real-world issues.
Students become members of a global learning community, they share knowledge and learn with and from each other. This process takes advantage of the network effect to enhance the intelligence and creativity of the entire group.
Whereas candena provides the high-quality didactic approach as well as the digital process thought-leadership, our partners provide the subject area expertise and the required resources. By integrating this innovative learning approach with a scalable, digital approach in the right way, the quality of education can be impacted on a global scale.
